    Does anyone know of a good reputable online site to order water plants?
    None of the nurseries around here carry them. I did buy some from Home Depot, but after waiting over 3 months for them to do ANYTHING... I tossed 'em out.
    Any suggestions please?

    Try a local pet store. I bought all my water plants at PetSmart, this is probably the wrong time of year to find them there tho I don't remember seeing them after about May.

    I tried that earlier this year. And either I chose the wrong type or they were no good. Because they never grew more than one leaf and it immediately fell off.

    Have a look at www.lilyblooms.com as they supply waterplants online and have a good reputation. Their plants are reasonably priced too.

    Oooooh, I like the red Iris. That would be a pretty addition to my container of black Gamecock Iris. ;)
